It is also possible that they couldn't scramble in time (total surprise) and they sent aircraft up in the air after the fact anticipating additional attacks. I am sure the IAF/MOD wouldn't hesitate to share the info if indeed they were able to scramble and were downed as there were probably other aircraft on the Indian side of the border waiting to pounce on them if they engaged.

News 18 claims 200-300 pest-e-shaeed. Plus multiple terror camps. Even Omar Abdullah commenting.

Wow, if this is true this was not a small strike by any stretch of imagination but will wait for official word, should any be forthcoming. https://t.co/bOFt7SXl43

News18 has reported, citing sources, that the IAF strike has led to 200-300 casualties on the Pakistani side.

This is even better than the Surgical Strike. Pakistan has admitted that they were caught with their pants down! They denied that the Surgical Strike ever happened.

https://twitter.com/KapilMishra_IND/sta ... 2477987840 ---> Pakistan accepting Indian Air Force entered Pakistan. :lol:

Balakot is way beyond LoC.

Dropped bombs & came back untouched.

Pakistan claiming no damage

By the way, Balakot has a Jaish-e-Mohammad training center

BTW how are you deducing the plane dropping flare is JF-17. I see canards (in the limited light)? But only 1 engine on afterburner

https://twitter.com/DivyaSoti/status/11 ... 9717706752 ---> Pakistan Army saying that IAF hit targets in Balakot. Balakot is beyond POK in Khyber Pakhthunkhwa. India has hit Pakistan too deep. Going by Pakistani claim, IAF was able to penetrate all Pakistani Air Defences over POK despite alert and constant patrolling by Pak Air Force. :lol:

Ya allah! This is from Wiki.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balakot
Balakot (Urdu: بالاکوٹ ‬‎) is a town in Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.


We actually went to Khyber Pakhtunwa! Imagine the number of soiled shalwars. :D :rotfl:

YES, @ 3 AM TWITTER was agog over a NETRA patrolling over the area and then taking a route beside the LOC/IB!

First SWATHI WLR and now NETHRA! Both used to whack TSP!!

All those who supported these programs, take a bow! (The developers and services of course already have our respect!)

There were reports they were pulling everyone back to camps from loc due to fear of attacks oops.

Twitter: Indo-Pacific (same source as the Netra pic): Pakistan sources report that Pakistani JF-17 aircraft launched retaliatory strikes into Indian positions on the line of control. No confirmation of this. Here is a pic of a Pakistani JF-17 aircraft

If so, I hope there is escalation to end PAF first, followed by taking PA totally apart. Enough!

https://twitter.com/manupubby/status/11 ... 5382596608 ---> Sharing this as it's all over Twitter anyway (not sure if it should be so easy to track). But the Indian 'Netra' ERJ 145 early warning aircraft is still on a steady pattern to monitor Pakistani air movements along the border.

Pakistan does not admit that it shelters terrorists on its soil. Can certainly not claim that they have been killed in an Indian air strike.

^^^NETRA had its transponder on to avoid civilian aircraft. About 0300-0330 is a busy time for air traffic into the Indian Subcontinent.

https://twitter.com/manupubby/status/11 ... 7150350336 ---> The Pakistani side has confirmed that a 'payload' (weapon) has been dropped near Balakot. Now, that is a very deep strike indeed by the Indian Air Force. And if Indian jets have come back unharmed from this, a superb mission indeed. No official word yet.

I think the the pics looked like drop tank debris in a different location. We don't have visual confirmation of destruction yet.

Question is whether they also downed a couple of Thundaars. Otherwise UBCN has to state that (a) PAF scrambled when Indian planes came near LOC (b) Indian planes flew right across Pakistan, showed middle finger to Islamabad and Rawalpindi and Peshawar, bombed the pakistan out of several terror camps, and returned - and hain, what were the "scrambled" PAF jets doing? Scratching their mijjiles? Small problem here, hain? :rotfl:

Added later: Do you need drop tanks for such a short mission?

3 points from Balakot Strike:
* IAF jets penetrated 60 km of Pakistan sky.
* The Northern bases of Pakistan have JF-17 as their best defence.
* All rendered useless before Mirage-2000.

I hope they had a mix of pilots from each squadron, otherwise one squadrons pilots will go broke sponsoring drinks for those who didn't take part in the mission. :mrgreen:

They help by allowing greater speed via AB and you may have contingencies where you need to fly low to maintain surprise and avoid EW radars. You have more options as you could always jettison them if required.
